ABOUT ARTS LEARNING LAB @ HOME
Starting April 15 and running through the end of June, Arts Learning Lab @ Home is a series of live online arts classes for kids and families schooling from home.

The workshops will be taught in both English and Spanish for those teachers that are bilingual, and will be live translated in closed captioning in both English and Spanish.The workshops cover a range of fun, hands-on, and participatory ideas like meditation through drawing with artist Claudia Concha, storytelling with artist Yrneh Gabon, a rhythm workshop in your kitchen with professional drummer and 2020 Make Jazz Fellow Shirazette Tinnin, and a monster movement workshop with performance artists Beck + Col.
